Tech tips

High School:  Infuse learning  We tip our collective hats to Krista Moroder for this one: “InfuseLearning is a breakthrough virtual learner response solution.” And it really is! It’s the ease of the thing, and the ability to actually see kids taking the quiz real time, and downloading the results instantly in an Excel spreadsheet, that have me hooked!
